Fresh Salmon and Crab Recipe

There is almost nothing better than a fresh caught Chinook salmon or Dungeness crab, so why not have them together at the same time. The next time you are feeling like a seafood treat give this Salmon Stuffed with Crab recipe a try. I like to fish and crab, so have the luxury of using very fresh fish and crab that I have harvested myself, but you can just as easily go to the local fish market and pick up the necessary ingredients to make your special seafood dinner. This recipe is great because it does not require very much prep time and goes very well, with any local fresh vegetables or a heap of brown or wild rice if that is something you enjoy for dinner.

Salmon with Crab Stuffing Instructions

  1. Cut the salmon fillet into portion sizes, generally about 2 inches wide is good.
  2. Cut down to the skin down the middle but do not cut in half and leave the top and bottom portion uncut in order to make the pocket for your crab mixture.
  3. In a small bowl, place the crab meat. Add the Season the salmon fillets
  4. Season the salmon fillets
  5. Salt, pepper, seafood seasoning. Some people enjoy placing a little parsley in with the crab or other herbs, but I prefer to not do so.
  6. Stuff the crab inside of the salmon
  7. Place in the oven at 350 degrees
  8. Begin cooking up your favorite vegetables, I like Asparagus with Salmon and Crab, but any of your favorites will work. Place rice in the rice cooker if you want to have an additional side item.
  9. When the salmon is done about 10 - 15 minutes in the oven, should be firm and cooked through, their will be some fat that has oozed out the sides as a sign that it is cooked through and ready to eat. Take it out and rest for a minute while plating with the veggies
  10. Enjoy!

      Thanks for the comment. My wife and I feel spoiled at times when the launching a boat into the ocean is only a 10 minute drive away to the marina.

      Nothing better than fresh caught fish! For the rest of us, we have to rely upon our grocery stores to supply us with the fresh ingredients. Your recipe sounds great. You can invite my husband and me to dinner anytime! :)) Voted up and useful.
